The HRDF claim has many schemes and Skim Bantuan Latihan (SBL) is the main scheme under HRDF. Its objective is to encourage employers to retrain and upgrade their employees’ skills in line with their operational and business requirements.

HRDF is a grant and not a subsidy for training. Under SBL, employers are free to identify their own training needs and implement the training programme in stages. Employers can also identify the skill proficiency training that employees might need.

SBL requires employers to make full payment for the training programme and reimbursement is based on employer claims.
